Start/Sit Week 12

Postby UMFan83 » Tue Nov 24, 2015 9:10 am

OK I need advice on prioritizing waiver claims

My 12 team league starts 3 RBs every week. The last few weeks I've been starting Gurley, Lynch, Langford with Starks on the bench. Starks has been demoted, Langford appears ready to go back to RB2 with Forte coming back, and Lynch might be out for the year...so instead of an incredible strength I'm now [expletive].

The good news is that there are literally 6 RBs I can pick up on the waivers that will likely start for a period of either 1 week or the rest of the season. I need help prioritizing my waiver claims. I am #6 in waiver priority, so I will get 1 of the 6, but I'm hoping I get one of the top 4.

Choices are:

-Thomas Rawls (if Lynch is out for the year obvious must add, but if he's miraculously not out for the year then its a bad pickup for me since it doesn't fill my RB3 spot)
-Spencer Ware (how injured is West? If its bad its a great move, if not again its a bad pickup)
-Javorious Allen (the guy he's replacing is the most injuried out of all 6 choices, but he was pretty mediocre in backing up Forsett)
-Carlos Hyde (should be back next week or the week after...inexplicably on the waiver wire in this very deep league)
-Ahmad Bradshaw (If Gore is out multiple weeks a good pickup if not a particularly great player)
-Tevin Coleman (the guy I least want to pick up, looks like Freeman had a minor concussion and might be back next week)

I have to put my claims in by midnight tonight...any advice?? I can also drop starks and pick up a second but not sure how to stagger my waiver priority to maximize my chances of getting 2 guys.

Hard to argue with SSR's order. I'm trying to get any of Rawls, Allen and Bradshaw (I too have Langford and am facing a demotion), but since I've already blown most of my FAAB budget (thanks for getting hurt again, Jamaal Charles) I have little chance at getting any of them. I can start Shane Vereen if I don't get any of those 3, but I don't really want to.

What's your waiver order?

Despite a pretty average team I'm currently sitting in the last playoff spot and playing the number 5 team who has the same record as me, but I have a point advantage. The number three team I'm also tied on with on record but way behind on points. So this is a huge week for my playoff hopes with two regular season matchups left.

Chose one
Ronnie Hillman v New England
Willie Snead @ Houston

Chose One
Delanie Waller v Oakland
Jimmy Graham v Pittsburgh

Ended up with Hyde, which is pretty good considering I was #6 on the waiver wire. The [expletive] thing is that he might not play this week but should help in the playoffs, which I've already clinched.

I only got Coleman in my league. Not great.

EDIT: I screwed up, it's actually Pick 3, not 2:

Forte
Woodhead
Rawls
Javorius Allen


ESPN says Forte and a toss up between Rawls(facing an elite D) and Allen(Forsett was not good and now they have no QB).

Assuming Forte is reasonably healthy, there's 0 reason to play Woodhead over the other 3.

Admittedly this is an easier decision choosing 3 instead of 2, but Woodhead has been pretty consistent(10 PPG prior to last week's team-wide stinker). I also am really wary of Allen not being much use in an offense run by Matt Schaub, as well as Langford poaching from a not-100% Forte. I'm currently benching Woodhead at the moment though, appreciate hearing that's the consensus.
